Does anyone here use an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate? That's what will turn the address bar from blue to green in Firefox 3.5, and I'm reading it's also supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, Safari 3.2, Opera 9.5, and Google Chrome. GoDaddy sells them for $200/year. I wonder if it affects sales in these browsers.
